Diazepam next day hang over! Help

Posted , 3 users are following.

I was rxd celexa and diazepam for anxiety and depression.  I have only taken diazapam 2 days (5mg and then 1mg). I have been really dizzy and spaced out the day after taking it. I feel almost more depressed the the next day as well. Is this common? I think I’m super sensitive to medications.  I have been on celexa 10mg for 5 weeks now waiting for it to kick in. I have also tri d ambien cr 12.5 and it seems to do the same thing.

    This happened to me and the dr and my neurologist immediately discontinued the drugs. Diazepam is addictive too at any dose.

    Benzodiazepenes affect people differently. Diazepam can be too heavy for some people even at low doses and may be inappropriate for anxiety accompanyed by depression.

    It could also be the interaction with other meds that cause the diazepam to hang around in the bloodstream for longer causing the extended hangover.

    Lorazepam is a more subtle alternative, less sedating and shorter half life or Xanax (Alprazolam) which is much lighter, less sedating and shorter acting but more addictive long term.

      I did the Ativan for awhile. It did not help It made everything worse when I came off of it! I have now been in celexa for five weeks. My sleep is good now tooo good! I very tired all the time but maybe my body is just recovering for lack of sleep from the last year of poor sleep. I did take 1/8 of a sleeping last night and some magtein. I may just cut those out and see what happens.
